Paul Merson has called on Arsenal to negotiate a swap deal with Manchester City for Sergio Aguero should Alexis Sanchez continue to push for a summer departure.
City are interested in the former Barcelona star with Pep Guardiola eyeing a reunion with Sanchez.
Starsport revealed last month that both clubs had discussed the idea of a bumper swap deal involving Sanchez and Aguero.
Merson, who played for Arsenal between 1982 and 1997, thinks Alexis will be extremely hard to replace and gave Arsene Wenger some advice for transfer talks with their Premier League rivals.
“I don’t think Arsenal can replace Sanchez, can they?” Merson told Goal. “He gets 30 of their goals, but you’ve got to move on.
“If someone doesn’t want to be at the club, Arsenal are a big club and you don’t want players who don’t want to be there. Arsenal are a big club, a very big club and you don’t want that.
“He’s a good player – if I were Arsenal I’d be ringing up Man City and saying ‘Give us Aguero and you can have Sanchez.’
“[If Alexis wants to go to Man City] then I’d say I want Aguero. He’s better than Sanchez.”
